Despite reports to the contrary, Alex Ovechkin did not receive a ship for his 30th birthday.
No, the rich don’t always get richer. Sometimes they just get rural.
After being misquoted that he had been given a ship as a b-day gift, the Washington Capitals‘ captain clarified Friday that it was indeed a sheep (think: Shaun The). One that baaas and grows its own wool and wears a Team Russia jersey.
Ah, those undecodable Russian accents.
There is even video proof of the sheep gift-giving.
“It’s [at] my country house right now,” the star told reporters at training camp. “It’s kind of funny.”
The sheep, which was given to Ovechkin by a Moscow-based TV network, is named Russia.
